That is foolishness in your eyes,not mine.I posted the reasons why I believed Atheists are arrogant,foolish,misinformed and deceitful.
and can provide further evidence to support my views on that subject. Oddly enough,you did not take the opportunity to dispute my views,,,,You merely changed the subject,an old political trick
used by mediocre politicians when they find themselves in a bind.
Nice try
Ok you want me to believe that after a talking snake made a woman eat fruit there was an ark with two of every kind and a super flood than a virgin got pregnant so the god that demanded animal sacrifice and killing babies turned in to a loving god and you are better than every one else?
Next you will want us to believe that you are not a drug abuser

why dont you know wrote:
One of the reasons the first amendment was established was to protect religion from the government. But now it's been turned on it's head and is used to protect government from religion. And there is no separation of church and state. That phrase came from a private letter from Thomas Jefferson to a Baptist minister and is not found in government documents but is used now as a reason to be hostile to religion. If our founding fathers could be aware of what has happened to their form of government, they would be spinning in their graves and wondering why we haven't thrown off the yoke of this modern version of government.
LOL, nice try but it is a lie.
The founding fathers, after seeing how the church in England slaughtered people saw fit to protect the people from the church.

Obviously that is not the point. Despite the bronze age story of Prometheus, we know that fire has never been a secret of the gods.

Judging by your ineptness ,You must be Skeptical Spektacals twin,
In order to clear up your misinformed mental state,go back to page4763 post number 99476,read it all and on verse 5 you will find my answer to the question . And No,I never said it was a miracle,What I said was"I believe it was God's answer to a prayer.

Therefore,you will not be able to understand or respond to what I posted,,,As You have no knowledge about the Power of prayer

on that same page,on post 99475 you will find irrefutable evidence that the part of my posting in question was deleted,Because the information contained therein ,is the part that neither you or any of the other Atheists on this website is able to answer.

I don't expect you to believe it. It's a shame you can't though.
Lets see if I can say this so it is understood.
I do not believe. I think that you do believe. I would fight some one over your right to believe, but I will also fight you over some one elses right not to believe.
There are several people posting here that act like they believe but clearly only believe in elevating themselves.
My point is every one has the same rights and no one shall trample them.
I respect that YOU truly do believe, I really do, at the same time I disagree with you.

I am responding to your post,number 99477. The answer to the question you are asking,can be found in my post number 99476 on page4763. In other words,it was right in front of your nose and you could not see it,which demonstrates how incompetent you are.
Go back to that post and read it,Answer will be found in 5th verse.
Do yourself a favor,program the post number ,pahe number and verse number into your GPS,that way you will have no excuse for not finding it.
And no,I never said it was a miracle, I believe it was God's response to prayer.
I do not believe that YOU do believe. You have been weighed and found wanting.

Have you read the letter from Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury (CT) Baptists?
Go back a few hundred pages, it's in this thread somewhere-at LEAST once, if not more than that. One more time posting it- won't hurt

Read it again. Slowly and with a not so closed mind.

One of the first things you should notice, aside from written eloquence, is the absence of venom, when addressing others.

----------

To messers. Nehemiah Dodge, Ephraim Robbins, & Stephen S. Nelson, a committee of the Danbury Baptist association in the state of Connecticut.

Gentlemen

The affectionate sentiments of esteem and approbation which you are so good as to express towards me, on behalf of the Danbury Baptist association, give me the highest satisfaction. my duties dictate a faithful and zealous pursuit of the interests of my constituents, & in proportion as they are persuaded of my fidelity to those duties, the discharge of them becomes more and more pleasing.

Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should "make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof," thus building a wall of separation between Church & State. Adhering to this expression of the supreme will of the nation in behalf of the rights of conscience, I shall see with sincere satisfaction the progress of those sentiments which tend to restore to man all his natural rights, convinced he has no natural right in opposition to his social duties.

I reciprocate your kind prayers for the protection & blessing of the common father and creator of man, and tender you for yourselves & your religious association, assurances of my high respect & esteem.

Th Jefferson
Jan. 1. 1802.

Now, should you wish to discuss the sociological aspects of Jefferson's own apparent ideals, the "good founding father T Jefferson" in mine opinion, could've used a bit of polishing in granting true freedom to ALL people.
Of course, that was then, and this now...but really if you consider the scenerio, Jefferson had himself quite a little "cult" of his own going on then, now didn't he.

1) I would gladly address your "issues" if you would state them rationally and clearly. Aside from that, I am not an anger management counselor. pfffft.

Actually, Jefferson did a bit of a political balancing act with this letter. The Danbury Baptist Association felt that Connecticut adopting Congregationalism as the official state religion placed them in a position of discrimination.
Jefferson's first draft of the letter explained that he was prohibited from "even occasional performances of devotion" unlike, he said, the way it is "practiced indeed by the Executive of another nation as the legal head of its church."

Is there something in this that leads you to believe Jefferson intended "separation of church and state" to denote anything more or less than government neutrality regarding religion?
Where do you jump from that to a Jeffersonian "cult?"
